Based on Bernard Werber’s best-seller, Empire of the Ants will offer a strategic experience close to the iconic books series where you embark on a fantastic journey through the infinitely small and lead your colony to a hopeful horizon.

Powered by Unreal Engine 5, experience immersive adventures and defend your lands through tactical and strategic battles in a microscopic world of epic proportions. Immerse yourself in a new ecosystem in the heart of a French Forest. You play 103 683rd, an ant determined to guide the colony towards new and more prosperous horizons.

In Empire of the Ants, each decision counts, each move is strategic and each conquest reflects your ability to dominate a world where the little ones are mighty.

Players will dive into the universe of the ants to live an epic adventure where they will have to help a colony prosper through tactical and strategical battles, in a microscopic world of epic proportions.
